One of the things I really love about quilting is the longevity of patterns and how they can be modified to reflect your own personal tastes. For the past ten months, bloggers and quilters have been putting the patterns in Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe, showcasing how fabulous and versatile the patterns are.
